The brother of former Congressman JC Watts will be sentenced today in a McIntosh County courthouse for manslaughter.

Lawrence Watts was convicted in September for the June 2003 shooting death of Anthony Greco. It happened at Watts' barbeque restaurant in Eufaula. Prosecutors say Watts killed Greco during a dispute over money.

Watts says he shot Greco because he was afraid of him.
